Shekihnah – Tribute to Lost Children – Sylvia Grevel

24 February, 2020

This artwork reflects the experience I have with Shekinah, the female face of God. God’s face turned toward creation and the world. I have experienced that in my own suffering, and I see it in my job as a chaplain working with parental loss. When parents lose their baby or child, the most unbearable pain finds comfort under t protective and most intimate cloak of L/love. I dedicate this art work to all the parents I have met. It is also a criticism to the male God who represents the Law in Micah. Shekhinah is a loving, gentle, kind female divine. With whom we can relate. She puts Her tent on earth so we can find shelter, even in the hardest of times She is with us – God going with us.
